Sonic Acts - The Poetics of Space
Spatial explorations in art, science, music and technology 
25 – 28 February 2010, Amsterdam

• Highlights Conference
The three-day conference in de Balie forms the heart of the festival. An international gathering of theorists, artists, researchers, composers and critics will reflect on their explorations of space in performative and audiovisual art, film, music and architecture.

Keynote Derrick de Kerckhove
Derrick de Kerckhove will open the conference on Friday morning with a keynote addressing the paradigm shift that has taken place in our culture on the notion of perspective, and how Point of View became Point of Being.
Derrick de Kerckhove worked with Marshall McLuhan for over ten years as translator, assistant and co-author. He has published extensively on culture, technology and biology, including co-editing a book that scientifically assesses the impact of the Western alphabet on the physiology and the psychology of human cognition, and a collection of
essays on the new electronic reality.

Gardeners of the Future 
In order to survive the near future, humans need to rapidly adapt to the challenges ahead. Artists will play an important role in ‘gardening’ the future, not only by shifting from computer technology to biology and genetic engineering, but also by starting to understand the universe as a single, large natural algorithm that needs gardening in order to function in a sustainable way. 
With astronomer and editor-in-chief of Leonardo, Roger Malina, the Canadian architect, artist and designer of interactive immersive environments Philip Beesley and the English writer, blogger and audiovisual artist Paul Prudence.
